Andrew Mullins Named Chief Executive Officer for Lifeline of Ohio
The Board of Directors for Lifeline of Ohio is pleased to announce their selection of Andrew S. Mullins, MBA, FACHE as the next chief executive officer for the organization. Mullins is currently serving as the organization’s COO and will succeed Kent Holloway, who will retire this fall after more than two decades of leadership as CEO.
“During his time as COO, Andrew has demonstrated the leadership skills, expertise and compassion necessary to navigate the complex field of organ procurement and transplantation,” says Naomi Hazan Maletz, chairperson of the Lifeline of Ohio Board of Directors. “We look forward with confidence to Andrew’s leadership and the continued success of Lifeline of Ohio.”
With more than 20 years in the field of organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation, Mullins has served as COO at Lifeline of Ohio for the past four years. He holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Mortuary Science, a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, is board-certified in healthcare management, and a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives. Mullins also served six years in the Ohio National Guard as a medical specialist as well as in mortuary affairs.
“My interest in the field of organ donation began when my grandfather received a heart transplant in 1987,” says Mullins. “I have a very personal understanding of the difference organ donation can make to those waiting, and I’m inspired everyday by the incredible generosity of the selfless donors and their families who leave a lifesaving legacy through the gift of donation.”
In addition to his work at Lifeline of Ohio, Mullins currently serves on the board of NATCO – The Organization for Donation and Transplant Professionals, President-elect of the ACHE of Greater Ohio, OmniLife leadership advisory board and is the Chair of the Chief Operating Officer’s Council for the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO).
